Could Bethenny Frankel be considering an exit from The Real Housewives of New York City just two years into her series return? According to a new report, Frankel may be leaving the Bravo reality series due to Sonja Morgan's threats of a lawsuit. After reports began swirling, claiming Morgan was planning to hire attorney Gloria Allred and sue Frankel, Frankel took to Twitter, where she responded to the rumors. "I can take it," Frankel wrote after a fan suggested the idea was "stupid/funny." Hours later, Bethenny Frankel sparked rumors of a series exit after a fan tweeted to her about her potential return for the yet-to-be-confirmed ninth season of the show.

"Now that's another question. Some damage was done," Frankel responded.
